The band members were the same as the last concert, Mr. Sakuraba (Keyboards), Mr Hasegawa (Bass) and Mr. Nakamura (Drums).
The location was much smaller than the last concert in 2003, and the hall was a good size to see all the musicians up close and see their fantastic performance on the stage. The "Live House" held a maximum of 350 people, and it looked pretty full, possibly close to that number.
There was a slight problem after playing a few songs with one of Mr. Sakuraba's keyboards (yes, there were many keyboards surrounding him) but, they had no problems with continuing show. They played the music from Star Ocean 3, Valkyrie Profile, Baten Kaitos, Star Ocean Director's Cut and Mr. Sakuraba's original tracks that he composed for this live show!
There were 3 original tracks, "Sakuraba's -Progressive Rock- style" captured the audience's hearts, and we all thoroughly enjoyed his new music!
Mr. Sakuraba seemed more relaxed at this live show, and spoke to the audience, thanking to them for coming and talking to the other band members. He is really a modest person and all this fans were happy to listen to him. Mr. Hasegawa and Mr. Nakamura (the Bass and Drums players), said that all Mr. Sakuraba's music were so hard to play, but they also felt so much achievement after playing his music. His original music pieces were the hardest tracks for them, and we, the audience felt the same in good way. They were all extremely exhausted after the live show, well, they were already tired after playing 2 tracks... !
There will be the full review from Mr.J. P. later on, please keep a look out for the review on Mr. Sakuraba's English Website and GoGameMusic.com. Photos of the live concert will be posted on the English Website.
Total of 17 tracks. The concert ran for 2 hours from 18:00 to 20:00 at the Astro Hall in Harajuku. Unfortunately, there was no live recording made of the concert.
